Ever set out to 'get in shape' or 'get fit', but never got there? You'll probably see better results if you work on your goal(s) before you work out.
There is an acronym in the fitness community that is used for goal setting. A good fitness professional will tell you to set S.M.A.R.T. goals. Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound. Go one step beyond and set S.M.A.R.T.-R. goals.
The ‘R’ stands for reward. Reward yourself after each goal achieved.
Specific. Be sure you set a specific goal. ‘I want to lose weight’, is not a specific goal. ‘I will lose ten pounds.’ is a specific goal. ‘I would like to run more this year’, is also not a specific goal. ‘I will run for 10 minutes straight' e is a specific goal.
